REGA is a well-known British brand in the analogue world, and this for more than 40 years now. Its know-how is widely recognised throughout the entire world, whether for its turntables, its MM cartridges and MC cartridges, its phono preamplifiers, its tonearms, its headphone amplifiers, etc. maPlatine.com invites you to discover its favourite products from the REGA brand.
The REGA Planar 1 turntable is an improved version that has just replaced the flagship product of the brand, the REGA RP1. After the arrival on the market of new versions of the Planar 2 and Planar 3 record players, REGA therefore offers us yet another new product, and not the least of them! Indeed, this Planar 1 (One) turntable has many technical and technological improvements, which will enable it to offer undeniable sound qualities. This turntable therefore exceeds the RP1, and to be honest, we didn't expect less from Roy Gandy! A favourite.
The REGA RP6 turntable is a descendant of the line of old versions of the REGA Planar. The technical and manufacturing qualities of REGA products go without saying. And if you dreamed of having a concert directly in your living room, this turntable will suit you perfectly so much that it shows realism in terms of voice, timbre and instruments. In addition to this, the REGA RP6 turntable is extremely versatile: classic, jazz, rock, electronic music… In short, it adapts to all tastes! A sound investment.
The REGA RP10 turntable is part of the high end of the British brand. It has many common points with its little system, the REGA RP8 turntable, while having undergone a few improvements such as its tonearm among other things. For the music, the playback is very neutral and has great realism. With this turntable, you therefore have all the musicality specific to REGA! Awarded with a Diapason d’or, this REGA RP10 is very certainly one of the most musical turntables currently available on the market.
The turntable cartridges of the REGA brand are all manufactured by hand in its manufacturing plants in Britain. A few months ago, we also had the opportunity to discover the work done by REGA and visit its manufacturing plants. The least we can say is that we were amazed!
The REGA Bias 2 cartridge is a moving magnet cartridge, featuring a different technology from its competitors. It combines perfectly with the turntables of the British brand, such as the REGA RP1, REGA Planar 1, REGA Planar 2, REGA Planar 3, etc. With this Bias 2 stylus tip, you will obtain the famous 'REGA sound'!
The REGA Exact cartridge is a high end MM cartridge, fixed by three screws to the tonearm, a technology specific to the British brand. This notably gives it great rigidity and offers a superb sound stage: balance, energy, details and many others again… This phono cartridge will surely wake up your speakers!
It is with the MC REGA Apheta cartridge that the brand launched itself in the world of the low output moving coil cartridge. So as not to miss a beat, REGA worked on this project for a long time. And we can say that this work has paid off! Indeed, from the very first listens, we were surprised by its audiophile performances and particularly by the sound quality of the instruments. This Hi-Fi MC cartridge is highly musical and highly versatile. It will go very well with all the high end turntables of the brand. Great value for money!
The REGA Fono MM MK2 phono preamplifier, as its name suggests, was specially designed for MM cartridges. Its small unit contains high quality components, increasing the technical nature and musicality of the product. But as always with REGA we want to say… In addition to this, the phono stage is very easy to use and can be combined with many phono cartridges, REGA or not! Quite simply a success.
The REGA Aria phono preamp can be combined with MM and MC cartridges, but it has a surprising specific feature: this phono preamp is divided into two phono stages, which enables you for example to be able to use two different turntables… Naturally excellent on the MM section, it is especially in the MC section that this REGA Aria surprised us! If you are looking for realism and musicality, this phono stage will certainly delight you!
Alongside the turntables, phono preamplifiers or phono cartridges, the REGA British brand is also known for its DAC, its integrated amplifiers or even its CD players, always of very high quality.
